Fighting Caravans

Published 1931
A strikingly handsome (and tall), youthful Gary Cooper -- this is the opportunity to see a giant screen legend when he was a vibrant young newcomer! This alone merits seeing this movie. The dialogue is witty, pithy and fun -- in fact, give me the screenwriter from 1931 over most of today's movies!. There is a lot of fast-paced and exciting western action (and the stuntwork is just plain fun to watch). Yes, this was relatively early movie making, and in some ways it shows, but that also provides tremendous enjoyment for the film buff. Watch it with a light heart, but with reverence for the old films, and I think you can't help but enjoy it.

I've not seen but the start of the movie. Of the three listed, the one listed as "fighting caravans" is not, in my experience, a good copy.The video is very jerky and sound is poorly synchronized. The one with the suffix "#632" or "1931" play very well. Don't know what is wrong but maybe someone familiar with the problems I described could figure this out. I'm using W7, 4 g's RAM and a dual processor so I don't think hard stuff is the problem. I had also dl'd this file in the past on a different system an the same thing happened. I love old westerns and this one appears to be one of the better ones so I'm looking forward to finally seeing it.

Today this movie is playing poorly on stream and on downloaded copy. No problem with other movies on site. Hope it clears up so I can get a good copy.

Audio is somewhat out of sync on the MP4, but its a very good movie so far. Dee

Didn't watch this one, but Cooper's best movie is The Westerner.

I saw this film a few years ago on cable. I enjoued then almost as much as I enjoyed this time. Suggestion: could you put all your G. Cooper films one spot instead of jumping aroun. I know you got more, I just couldn't find them.
